This recipe for mashed cauliflower has the appearance of whipped mashed potatoes and goes well with Flour Free Pot Roast Gravy as pictured, or as a base for many sauces or dishes that in our pre-paleo days might have been served on noodles. It has a very moist texture and creamy \”mouth feel.\” If you prefer a lumpier, more chewy dish, look up the \”Mashed Cauliflower with Onions\” recipe or other similar recipe.

1 head of cauliflower serves about 4. You can easily half or double this. You can also use a bag of frozen cauliflower florets, but will need to thaw first to trim the stems or trim after cooking and reheat. The stems don\’t whip up as well as the florets. But if you don\’t mind that, just include them…they will still taste good.

Prepare a head of cauliflower by trimming the leaves and core. Cut off the florets, saving the stems for another use, such as soup or stir fries. Steam, boil, or microwave the florets until they are soft. We like to simmer them in chicken broth for great flavor. Drain the cooking liquid and save it for another use if you wish.

Use a food processor, a potato masher or ricer, a fork, or a stick blender to smash the florets, then whip them with a little chicken broth, heavy cream, coconut milk, or whichever milk or milk substitute you prefer. You can also whip them in a blender, but it will require more liquid and the result will be softer.

Serve immediately or keep warm in the oven. This also reheats well in the microwave. You can reheat leftovers in the oven or microwave, or carefully in a saucepan with some additional liquid and oil or fat.

The picture also included No Flour Pot Roast Gravy and Garlicky Mixed Greens, (recipes on fastpaleo) alongside a serving of pressure cooked grass fed chuck pot roast.
